Korea’s Most Wanted Memebox Review & Unboxing

Today we have another old-ish Memebox unboxing post. This is my Korea’s Most Wanted Memebox review… this box shipped out at the end of August, but I didn’t get it until mid-September… and for some reason this post has been sitting in my drafts, about 3/4 finished, for well over a month! I seriously have no clue what’s up with me, but it’s time to get cracking on this Memebox review backlog, huh?

It’s not even like it wasn’t an exciting box, either – I actually really liked all the products and I’ve been frequently some of them – one item was even the target of attempted theft by my mother because it’s so nifty, haha. But I’m getting ahead of myself a bit, so let’s get back to the basic premise of this box.

It’s a sister act!

Did you know that Memebox Global has an older sister named Memebox Korea?

Both sisters were both born in Seoul, yes, but after Memebox Global’s move to San Francisco, and a long time of separation, the sisters are finally doing something fun! This time, it’s a sister act!

Memebox Global and Memebox Korea are teaming up to bring you Korea’s Most Wanted Box, the best of the best in K-Beauty!

Also a global hub for K-beauty-holics and makeup addicts, Memebox Korea carries only the hottest and most up-to-date Korean trends, and she’s giving us everything from hair and body products to makeup and skin care products so that you can get a taste of real Korean beauty! This box retails at over $100, but you can get yours for only $32!

Who can resist that, right? The hottest beauty trends AND bang for your buck? This was one of the first Memeboxes that I ordered, actually, as it just sounded like such a good introduction to Memebox in general. Honestly, I wasn’t disappointed, and I hope that they do more iterations of this concept in the future!

intro

This box includes a nice mix of items – you’ve got skincare, makeup, nail polish, and even an interesting kind of… utility product, I guess, would be the best way to define it?

If you just want a quick-and-basic idea of what was in the box, here is the front and back of the included information card:

My Cute Wishlist 2 Memebox Review & Unboxing

Like so many people, one of my favorite things about Asian cosmetics is just how darn cute the packaging can be. Etude House, Tony Moly, Skinfood, It’s Skin’s Babyface line, and my personal favorite Holika Holika – tons of brands make their names with both products that are both adorable and high quality. Given how often “cute packaging” in Western cosmetics tends to mean “cheap, crappy drugstore products aimed at pre-teens”, it’s really awesome to have a way for adults with real skin and cosmetic concerns to still be able to indulge their more whimsical sides.

All that is to say, when My Cute Wishlist 2 popped up on the Memebox site? OF COURSE I grabbed it.

overview

Here’s the official description of this Memebox:

It’s Back! We spritzed, powdered, and puckered up our way through thousands of precious darlings to bring you a box that bubbles over with cuteness!

The second edition of our My Cute Wishlist Box is loaded with darling delights that have swoon-worthy signature cheeky Korean names and gosh-darn-cute packaging. From miniature beautifying trinkets to precious pouch portables, this box full of darling beauty finds will make you bubble over with giddiness.

I’d have to say that personally, I think this box did live up to its hype! It’s definitely the box that I was most pleased with simply based on initial appearances. Obviously, as I try out individual products from all the (too many) boxes that I’ve ordered, that could change a lot, so that’s why I’m emphasizing that this is currently my favorite box just based on superficial, first appearances.

Ever since finding out about the It’s Skin Babyface line, I have been wanting… well, pretty much the entire line! I was so happy to see the trademark smiley-face-and-wings packaging looking at me from within this box! The product in the ice cream truck packaging and the happy pig box also stood out to me upon first look.
